About This Item: 
A fascinating survey of the enduring human love affair with the exotic and the strange, and its impact on Western cultureExotic explores our obsession with the lure of distant lands and their promise of the weird and wonderful, the beautiful and grotesque Through a host of evocative images, this book shows how the absorption of 'the foreign, ' through arts, design, architecture, and other cultural elements, has consistently enriched Western society, contributing to it cultural dynamism and artistic energy Exotic's focus is especially relevant to the modern globalized world in which our engagement with cultures and traditions from around the globe is easier - and potentially more fraught - than ever before
